Hot start issue

Never had this problem before, in the middle of nowhere phones near flat so don't want to do much searching for the answer.
I just had the exact same issue, motor would spin but not fire. I waited about 45 minutes in about 60F degree weather and after the motor cooled it fired right up. It's certainly temperature related because it wouldn't fire on a full battery but after waiting fired right up on an almost dead battery. It was so low from cranking for a few seconds every few minutes the tach and time were fading out when it cranked.
